Jets expect big jump in Quinnen Williams’ second season

Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams is headed to court on July 23 to deal with his March arrest for having a gun in his carry-on luggage at LaGuardia Airport in New York and a resolution to the case would leave nothing looming over Williams’ head when training camp starts a few days later.

Williams was the third overall pick last year and went on to start nine of the 13 games that he played as a rookie. He had 28 tackles and 2.5 sacks in those appearances, which is far less production than defensive coordinator Gregg Williams expects to see this time around.

During a Thursday conference call, Williams said an ankle injury made more of an impact than many people realized. With better health, he sees better things coming for the young defensive lineman.

“I think people are going to see a big jump in his production and in his play,” Williams said, via Brian Costello of the New York Post.

The Jets have gotten relatively little reward from their early-round draft investments in recent years. Williams making the kind of leap that his coach believes is coming would be a welcome change on that front.

  1. He’s talented but lazy. Been an issue since college but Saban was able to get the most out of him. Can Greg Williams do the same?

  2. People like Jamal Adams and this probable bust out of the top 10 yet again are not players on NE’s draft board.

    Any red flag Bama guys BB gets the straight dope from Saban on, don’t ever get consideration, yet the Jets keep acting like because they drafted a guy in the top 10, somehow this time will be different.

    I am honestly probably forgettin some names, too.

    They should have been trading out of Rd1 10 years ago. lmao

  3. Hey his personal trainer was quoted as saying how committed he is this year. He actually cut Oreos out of his diet. And can someone please explain to me in this day and age how stupid you have to be to carry a gun into an airport?

  4. Don’t forget Dee Milliner. Not to mention the 2nd round busts like Devin Smith, Stephen Hill and Jace Amaro. So many wasted early round draft picks.

  5. What afficionados you all are. I ‘pray for’ the opportunity to see the jets tackle the rest of the division
